Future plans

Packages following the same model for MalcolmRobb & FlightAware’s forks of dump1090 are in the pipeline. So is a repackaged version of piaware.

.

Great news for users of Linux amd64 on Intel PC.
If this materializes, for architectures other than arm (RPI), piaware packages could be installed by command sudo apt install piaware and sudo apt install dump1090-fa. No need to build from source code.

Building from source

Note about Bias-t support: Bias-t support is available for RTL-SDR.com V3 dongles. If you wish to enable bias-t support, you must insure that you are building this package with a version of librtlsdr that supports this capability. You can find suitable source packages here and here. To enable the necessary support code when building, be sure to include preprocessor define macro HAVE_RTL_BIAST.
